Stuck in Remote Administrative Mode Windows SBS 2003 running Term Server

I am running Windows 2003 SBS on a Dell 2900 in a Small Health Care Practice. There is a remote location with a few Terminals that I need to connect into the system  so I purchased 5 Term CALs. I installed them successfully and setup a new connection in Terminal Services configuration. I selected a separate network adapter however it does not matter I get the same message; "This server is configured in the default Remote Desktop mode for remote administration, which allows a maximum of two simultaneous remote connections." Also in another spot it tells me to go to Add/Remove programs to correct this, however nothing is there regarding this topic.

Use Add/Remove Windows Components (not Add/Remove Programs, it is the 3rd items on the left column of Add/Remove Programs)- Install Terminal Services and TS Licensing server

Terminal Server application mode is not supported on SBS 2003.  I'm afraid there's no way around it without installing a different OS or purchasing a second server.

I am using ADD/REMOVE windows components not programs and I am pretty sure u can use Term Serv in SBS as it has a licensing wizard, configuration tool and management utility.

Unfortunately, no:

"The Terminal Services in Application Mode component of Microsoft® Windows Server" 2003 operating system can deliver the Windows desktop from a centralized server to virtually any desktop computing device. This component is not available in Windows Small Business Server 2003."

SBS can serve as a Terminal Server Licensing server, and you can use the Terminal Services Manager utility to manage other terminal servers from the SBS server, but SBS only allows Remote Desktop for Administration, not full Terminal Services.

Ok so I believe you will have answered my question DrDave242, just one more thing. In addition to my SBS Server I have a Windows 2003 Standard Server which planned to use for terminal services in the first place. I am assuming I just need to setup term services on the standard server then my licenses I installed on SBS term manager will apply here, correct?

DrDave242Commented:
That is correct.  You should configure terminal services on the 2003 Standard server to use the SBS server as a licensing server (although it should be able to discover this on its own).
